Derrick Rose has been playing better lately, but he’s still not happy in the Knicks’ offense.
The triangle is Knicks president Phil Jackson’s revolutionary scheme that transcended the sport and helped him coach 11 championship teams. Rose still isn’t feeling it.
Rose, who will be a free agent at the end of the season, has scored at least 13 Best Cheap Jerseys From China points in his last eight games, while averaging 17.6 points and 4.4 assist per game this season. Yet, the point guard has been critical of the triangle offense, mainly because he can’t shoot.
Though his stance hasn’t changed much, he is learning to accept the offense he plays in while trying to make the best of it.
“S–t, do I have a choice? Do I have a choice?” Rose said, via New York Daily News, when asked if he’s warming up to the triangle. “I just want to win games. Winning takes care of every category for an athlete.”
Three-point shooting has never been Rose’s strong suit. Even when he was a top prep star, at Simeon in Chicago, and fans were flocking to watch him. The triangle offense exposes that weakness.
“I could shoot them (3-pointers) now, I just don’t want to,” he said. “I don’t have time to be dealing with the critics that come with all that. So I’d rather be efficient than just try things.
Warriors forward Draymond Green is never without a comeback, and he came right back at Lillard Cheap NFL Jerseys after comments he saw as maybe a bit misguided.
